I am so excited. Joss Whedon is so much fun, and this cast is amazing!
I recommend the film to any of you who are into subtly comedic SciFi/Westerns with Kick Ass female characters.
Fun for all!
Full review coming soon...
I love it when stars behave badly. One of my favorite mis-behavers is Lara Flynn Boyle.
She gets it. She wears whatever she wants, f*cks whoever she wants, is skinny as she damn-well pleases, and insults people grandly.
Today, she wins the award for best quote of the day (year), with this little gem, courtesy of Contactmusic.com:
Thank God somebody in Hollywood has a sense of humor!
Korn LOVES the naughty girls...

For those of you who don't live in Southern California, and have not experience the Orange County Housewife phenomenon, Desperate Housewives is just scandalous nighttime TV. Watercooler talk. But for those of us who actually have (gorgeous, manicured, liposuctioned, fashionable) housewife friends living the stuff you see on TV, it is a bit of an unsettling reminder of why they are all so f*cking crazy in the first place.
I think the creators of Desperate Housewives brilliantly recognized the gap left when 90210 and Melrose Place ended, and decided to bring those viewers (now all grown up, with homes, husbands, and kids of their own) back with a show just for them. And now, an OC Housewife friend from my childhood is having a mid-life crisis. At 34. I haven't yet asked her if she watches the show.
Teri Hatcher and Nicolette Sheridan. Friends in real-life.
For those of you who don't visit my photo album, I thought I'd post this photo of Teri Hatcher and Nicolette Sheridan together, since they appear to be friends in "real-life". I saw them out one night together at A.O.C. (a French restaurant in LA). They both looked GREAT. Nicolette much more feminine and pretty than she is in photos...Teri not nearly as skinny as you'd think, nicely shaped. They were totally gossiping and confiding in each other, drinking wine...you know...girlfriend stuff.
Clearly somebody ratted all of of us gleeful-naughty bloggers out to Star Jones, pre-Emmy red carpet show, because she was very disciplined in avoiding all the drinking game hot words this year. My party people only counted one obvious "Bling", and two "My Friend / My Girl (ownership of the celeb)" type statements. We stopped counting the references to husband Al after the Marcia Cross interview.
We also (we consisting of a cross section of gay boys, a married straight couple, and single "mostly straight" girls) voted on our favorite fashion look of the evening. Our votes were based on who was interviewed during the E! red carpet show--so we may have missed a few, but the winners overall were:
and honorable mentions to: Portia de Rossi, Jesse Metcalfe, and (one of my favorites) Sarah Chalke.
I can't believe this is the best photo I could find on the web of her dress...maybe better ones will show up later.
Justin Timberlake resembles a weasel in more ways than one: He outed Britney Spears' de-virginization. How rude. There was no need for him to discuss that. He was clearly being vindictive, but defended himself by saying he was being "Honest." Weasel.
Yep--he's a Weasel.
UPDATE: I just got this casting notice and I thought Justin would be perfect for the role. Somebody call his agent...
This film is highly stylized and based on a Japanese short story about a tattoo artist with a rare gift. He leaves his 'mark' on his victims by releasing their inner animal. There is no pay but it will be shot on 35mm and will be great for the actor's reel. There is going to be a large focus on acting so even though this film is very conceptual, it's a great place to showcase talent.
[MAN 1] He is a tattoo artist who leaves 'his mark' on his victims by exposing their inner animal. He is solitary, well-dressed and homicidal. He is a true artist who has been given a gift. Think Adrian Brody.
[SIMPSON'S SON] He's a WEASEL and very annoying - the opposite of his father. He is always trying to be the best.

Rules for the Star Jones 2005 Emmy Awards drinking game:
- Whenever Star says the word 'Bling.'
- Whenever Star refers to a celebrity as belonging to her, as in, "Here comes my girl, Nicole Kidman." or "Please welcome, my man, Jamie Foxx."
- Whenever Star mentions the husband, you should have to go in the closet and drink.
Timothy spent 13 seasons in Alaska, living amongst the bears. Loving them, studying them, touching them, and, finally, with his girlfriend, getting eaten by them.
Most of the movie is Treadwell's own footage, and it plays like a video diary. He reveals very intimate facts about himself, while presenting his take on the bears. One of those facts was that he had been severely alcoholic before retreating to the wilderness to study the bears. You see, he was a failed actor, who anesthetized himself with booze and drugs. By choice, he switched his addiction to the study of Grizzly Bears. Like any addiction, it ran it's course. He reached rock bottom in his relations with bears and humans alike, chose to return to the bears out of season, and was killed for it.
Watching his spiral is funny, and exhilirating, and horrifying and sad. He's manic in his love for the bears and his hatred for the world he left behind. Like many actors (successful and not so successful) he is convinced and of his own star power, and overly aware of his "cult of personality"--to the point of paranoia.
I enjoyed the movie on many levels, but, from a Starf*cking perspective, even more. It's not often that we get to witness such a raw exhibit of how far the need for fame will drive people...or how much it can damage them when not realized.
